Joe Lieberman Co-Teaches National Security Law Course
Former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman recently joined Columbia Law School Professor Matthew C. Waxman in teaching a course on congressional power and national security law. The course, Congress in American Foreign and Defense Policy, covered topics ranging from the recent crisis in Ukraine to decisions about military force in Iraq, as well as economic sanctions, foreign aid, and counterterrorism. Lieberman, the former chairman of the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, offered students an insider’s perspective on how the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government handle these issues.
